Handedness: Neutral or adaptive?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):220-220 (2003)
Abstract
Corballis seems to have not considered two points: (1) the importance of direct selection pressures for the evolution of handedness; and (2) the evolutionary significance of the polymorphism of handedness. We provide arguments for the need to explain handedness in terms of adaptation and natural selection.
